Went to cruising the coast this weekend. Ole lady drove the car and my kid and his friend rode. Its almost a 3 hour ride. I drove my truck and pulle dmy camper, We stayed at Buccaneer State park. The thing I didnt realize when we booked it, The action was an hour away from us. So I did lots of driving back and forth. GTO actually did well, averaging 17mpg, interstate driving 80-85mph and city driving. I had zero problems.I didnt race anyone because during these festivities, the cops are very strict. I wont say I didnt smash it on the back roads or interstate a few times, however. lol. I almost brought my drag radials but I changed my mind at the last minute.
My buddy trailed his fourth gen trans am down there. Good thing he did because the trans went out again. I think this is the third time it'll have gone out. I want to race him but his trans keeps breaking. He has an ls3/turbo 400....runs 10.60 @ 126.
I told him when he gets tired of messing with that junk, I'll build him a 4L60e lol. Seriously, the trans in my car would easily handle what he's throwing at it. Until he sprays it, it'll last about a year.
Any ways, we had a good time even though the weekend flew by. Next year I'm gonna have to take a few days off of work so we can stay longer. I'm just ecstatic the car made it AGAIN there and back with no issues. I do have a few shot one or so minute long videos of me walking down the street looking at some of the cars, if anyone is interested I can post them to youtube and post them here....

I was at the hourly rumble on Saturday at Gulfport Dragway. Fun enough, but mostly attracted an inexperienced crowd, both drivers and spectators. I'd probably skip it next time.

you two know y'all are besties.
Are you jealous? I think you thought you and I were besties. lol

I dont know that guy. I wasnt interested in going to the track either, I purposely left my drag radials at home. Had i not, I probably would have had to trailer the car home lol.

While I’m posting videos. Here’s one when we were headed home. Wife was driving the car, I thought I’d do a drive by video and you’d be able to hear the car. Nope. Too quiet. Anyways. Whatever. Lol. It’s only 12 seconds long.
